Full Stack Quarkus and React

Overview of this book

React has established itself as one of the most popular and widely adopted frameworks thanks to its simple yet scalable app development abilities. Quarkus comes across as a fantastic alternative for backend development by boosting developer productivity with features such as pre-built integrations, application services, and more that bring a new, revolutionary developer experience to Java. To make the best use of both, this hands-on guide will help you get started with Quarkus and React to create and deploy an end-to-end web application. This book is divided into three parts. In the first part, you’ll begin with an introduction to Quarkus and its features, learning how to bootstrap a Quarkus project from the ground up to create a tested and secure HTTP server for your backend. The second part focuses on the frontend, showing you how to create a React project from scratch to build the application’s user interface and integrate it with the Quarkus backend. The last part guides you through creating cluster configuration manifests and deploying them to Kubernetes as well as other alternatives, such as By the end of this full stack development book, you’ll be confident in your skills to combine the robustness of both frameworks to create and deploy standalone, fully functional web applications.

Securing the Application

In this chapter, we’ll implement a security layer based on JSON Web Token (JWT), pronounced “jot,” to protect the HTTP API we developed in Chapter 3, Creating the HTTP API. We’ll start by learning about Quarkus security and its JWT-related extensions. We will also add the required dependencies and learn about what each of them provides. After that, we’ll implement the security for our task manager application. We’ll generate and configure the required key files, create an authentication and authorization service, and protect the HTTP endpoints.

By the end of this chapter, you should be able to provide a security layer for your Quarkus application based on JWT. You should also have a basic understanding of the Quarkus security module and how to generate your own JWTs.

We will be covering the following topics in this chapter:

  • Using JWT security in Quarkus
  • Implementing the task manager’s HTTP API...
